Soil Analysis and Report

We are just completing our first of the new maintenance regime and had our second soil analysis report a short while ago. Whilst we still have a long way to go the report showed significant progress already. The soil analysis along with local review/information enables John to put together a straightforward report and maintenance plan. The revised maintenance plan is already "bearing fruit" both in terms of general green improvements but in terms of being cost effective. The support and expertise provided by Bowls Central is allowing the "rooky greenkeeping crew" at the club to move forward with confidence, many thanks Paul

Soil Analysis

Having the soil analysis done has given us a thorough examination of where our green is a this moment in time giving us a base line to work from. We were also given a program to work from and a list of materials required to meet this program. In the past we have relied on the recommendations of a salesman from a reputable company and we have followed past practices. I am not saying they were wrong but the club believe the way ahead is to follow a program based on a soil analysis. We accept where we are at the moment but we feel a lot more confident that we will turn the green round through hard work and expert advice.
We also benefit from Johns experience and after sales service which we have found very beneficial.

Soil Analysis

I took over as Corley Bowling Clubs green keeper in August 2017. Having read of John Quinn articles on green keeping in the Bowls International magazine. The first thing I did was to contact via email John Quinn and we exchanged a series of emails over a month or so with him giving what I thought was sound advice. "get a soil analysis done and I will be able to assist you much better" having seen some soil analysis done by fertiliser manufacturers I was amazed by the amount of information given by Bowls Central independent analyser. everything was clear and well explained. From this John produced for us an annual program for the whole year. This program is very comprehensive and gives information on a week by week basis on how to proceed. We stuck to this plan for the whole of this year and our green has performed better than ever. It has also remained very green. That is not to say that we have had no problems because we have, but we know from bowling on other greens ours has faired much better than most. We are that pleased with this year performance that we have just sent off the soil analysis for this year ready for the following years program starting in October.

Soil Analysis report

I wish I had John's soil analysis report in front of me years ago when I first started looking after our green. No more guess work or " we always do this every year. Looking at the results of following johns comprehensive and clear instructions in conjunction with the compost tea is taking our green to a new healthier level. I can't thank you enough .
Regards Les

Soil analysis

Being a novice/ volunteer green keeper the soil Analysis Services John has provided me for the last two years has been the reason why our green is in the fantastic condition it is. I can truly say I would not have achieved this without the report and yearly Maintainece program provided by john.
Thanks for your help Paul
